There are allocated funds for that in the stimulus package. Wait until more then 15% of the funds have been distributed, then we'll see how much more infrastructure spending is needed.

Did you read my above posts? The stimulus bill only contributed one 20th of what was necessary to bring it up to PAR. That's unacceptable. Obama said in his campaign that he wanted to create jobs by repairing and maintaining our infrastructure, I want him to hit it home on that promise.

Um... isn't that the city's responsibility? Over here, the cities maintain their roads, and there has rarely been financial problems with that.

Wow...

I really like Obama. He's a cool guy, knows his stuff, honest, and generally a good person. But he's becoming weak, and his whole bipartisanship idea is not working no matter how much he wants it to. He should get off his ass and start doing something, regardless of the ridiculous criticism he's getting from the right wing, and forget those who are holding progress back.

Though I have to admit, I liked what he tried to do with Chicago for the Olympics, even though it failed in the end.

Perhaps it's just the news coverage, but it doesn't seem like any other important issues are being dealt with, infrastructure being one of them.

good news doesn't sell nearly as well as bad news.

Hurricanes are profitable though, despite being bad.

That's my point. Besides the Chicago incident, and his previous fight with Healthcare reform, Obama is too weak. He is a very smart man, and through his honest appeal and his actual honesty, I can tell he means well. But he isn't doing well, and that's because he's caving into pressure from the other side.

I hope he does well, though. Being the first black president is a huge honour, and so I don't want to see it as a failure for him or America.

Its because of all the publicity things he does. He goes on shows hosted by people who usually invit celebrities. Obama is a celebrity. He gives off the cool vibe because he isn't stupid and knows how to act near the media.

He gives America way more face time then any other president. I would like to see him in office more then on some Late Night show talking about his home life.

yeah, i for one think it's high time to scrap the bipartisanship spiel and put that democratic supermajority to use then we might be able to get some things done.

He ran a campaign that never fought against the Republican nominee, but instead fought for the Democratic side. He never smeared McCain, didn't fight against his critics> All he did was just run for president.

Seriously, not many presidents, if none at all, ran that kind of campaign, let alone win. To say he is just a celebrity isn't really fair.

Re: Obama- Good or Bad for the Nation?

Jumping in before someone starts spouting things about Obama's Nobel Peace Prize: the committee often gives it during a peace process, as incentive/inspiration for the individual in question to continue their work.

Wait, Nobel Peace Prize? Obama?

That's the first time I heard of it. When did this start?
